Reco People Counting

The solution allows you to make a precise and real-time count of the number of people accessing or passing through a video surveillance area.

The algorithm allows you to perform, through a settable threshold, an accurate and real-time count of the number of people accessing or passing through a video surveillance area in both running directions.

The algorithm allows you to perform, through the existing cameras:

- the total count of people accessing or passing through a video surveillance area;
- the partial count of people entering or passing through a video surveillance area in the two directions of travel.

The people counting node sends an alert to the platform, that is to the command and control system, when the meter exceeds the "safety threshold" (max number of admissible subjects) previously set by the operator. The operator of the command and control system receives the alert of this type from a camera that monitors the area and proceeds with a follow-up if necessary.

Implementation

Ideal for managing the influx in public areas that have capacity limits for safety reasons, in order to prevent the dangers deriving from overcrowding and as a containment measure of the Covid-19 infection. There are many applications of people counting, such as monitoring how many people enter a museum, a public office, or a stadium, a public event, a square, the historic center, stations, airports. With the data collected, it's possible to check, for example, which days or hours are when a greater presence of personnel is required, as well as to perform flow statistics.
